The name Nokia stirs up a sense of nostalgia among the Indians today. The mobile phone that was at the top of sales reputation a few years ago was wiped out almost overnight during the advent of the android phones of Samsung. Ever since the android smartphone market is booming with several manufacturers such as Motorola and Lenovo constantly struggling for power to reach the top. Since then, Nokia did try to have a comeback with its Lumia range of devices featuring the windows operating system in smartphones. It was quite successful until finally, Microsoft took over and the Nokia name vanished from the smartphone industry altogether.
However, in recent news, Nokia is said to have made a comeback, the strongest one that smartphone industry has ever seen yet. With the announcement of the release of the classic indestructible Nokia 3310 in a revamped version and the new series of smartphones namely the Nokia C1, Nokia 6 and the Nokia D1C, Nokia is the smartphone brand that is on the tip of everyone’s tongue.
Let us have a look at the expected specifications of the Nokia C1 collected from various sources,
The Nokia C1 is expected to feature either a 5-inch or a 5.5-inch full HD display. With the advent of phablets and gigantic smartphones, it was a smart move by Nokia to stick on the fairer side of the size spectrum of the phones to ensure that it is neither too big nor too small to be used as a touchscreen smartphone.
OS and processor:
The Nokia C1 is expected to be featured in both Android as well as windows operating systems. The android variant of the phone can be expected to run on the Android Marshmallow 6.0 and the windows variant can be expected to run on Windows 10. Considering a fairly brief history between Nokia and android, there are fewer hopes that the Nokia C1 will receive updates to the latest Android OS, the Android Nougat 7.0.
The device is also set to sport a 1.8 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 6 series processor. Coupled with a massive 4 GB of RAM, the device will be capable of handling multi-tasking operations quite easily.
The smartphone is expected to have an internal storage capacity of 32 GB that can be expanded via the use of a microSD card. The 32GB internal capacity is expected to be more than enough to allow the users to install multiple applications without running out on space quickly.
Also, unlike most of the smartphones, the Nokia C1 will not feature a hybrid sim tray slot enabling the users to use a dual sim along with a microSD card for expansion purposes.
The Nokia C1 is predicted to have a 16-megapixel rear shooter and a 5-megapixel front shooter for clicking selfies. Considering the mid-section price range, the camera specifications are good enough to give a competition to most of the smartphone manufacturers in the current market.
As mentioned earlier, one of the significant plus points of using the Nokia C1 is the absence of a hybrid sim-tray and instead have a dedicated microSD slot. This will allow the users to be able to function with expandable storage and dual sim at the same time. One of the downsides of the connectivity options on this device is that it lack NFC capability. The phone is most likely to support for the 4G bandwidth in order to access high-speed internet connection.
The phone is suspected of featuring a small 2800mAh battery that will not be powered by the quick-charge technology. This will make the device hard to be used for an entire day without having to plug it into a power socket.
Nokia has definitely made enough noise on its comeback shaking the earth beneath the feet of the other mobile manufacturers. Although most of the mentioned information is tentative, it can be considered to be one of the most accurate estimates of the specifications of the new device. The Nokia C1 has no fixed price announcement yet, but it is safe to assume that it is targeted towards the upper-middle class audience making the price range from 15 thousand to 25 thousand rupees.
